Video: Town Hall Meeting to Save the French Quarter’s Protections

Early in May of 2023, New Orleans City Council member Freddie King proposed an ordinance that would “prohibit the prosecution of any violation or prevention of the issuance or renewal of any permit” in the French Quarter. The PRC held a Town Hall Meeting on Monday, May 22, 2023 to discuss the troubling proposal that would stop for one year the prosecution of any building violation cited by the Vieux Carré Commission (VCC), including those for demolition by neglect.
